Letting Go with Guy Finley

A Hard Gift To Accept

posted by Guy Finley

Question: As a child and a younger person, my prayers were answered almost immediately. Now I’m supposed to be wiser, more mature, experienced, and it would appear as if my prayers take a longer time to be answered or manifested. I wonder if I’m getting in the way of myself?

Answer: It may not seem so, especially when we have our hearts and minds set upon an imagined outcome, but the great and compassionate Wisdom that guides all of life never makes a mistake with what is delivered to us moment by moment. For one example, looking at the question from the idea “As above, so below”… a good parent knows that sometimes the very best thing he or she can give a child is to refuse them what they have asked for. Why? Because that’s the only way to teach that child values that are greater than the thing he or she wants. God acts in mysterious ways, no doubt! And the only way to find out if the Divine wants you to have something greater than you can imagine is to accept its gift of “Not now, and not as you want it!”

How Love Transforms

Love doesn’t resist or resent anything; it knows and sees the secret unity in all it beholds. Light doesn’t fear shadows; it gently transforms them into open space.

The Only Way the World Can Change

posted by Guy Finley

No image reflected in a mirror can be any better or worse than the nature of whatever it is that stands before that mirror. The world that we see “outside” of us — with all of its poverty, sickness, and violence, is the accurate reflection of (the present level) of our collective consciousness. This is an inescapable fact; in fact, the real problem (and the reason our planet remains “pained” as it does) is we don’t want to see our complicity. It should be obvious — as glimpsed from our individual lives — that what we believe often causes others to suffer for those same beliefs; religious intolerance, maniacal self-righteousness, just the insistence that someone else except our opinion as being valid “or else” face the consequences… all of these are instances in which what we believe can make bitter the lives of even those we say we love. Now multiply this insight by 6 billion people and it is not hard to see why billions cry as they do. The real inner work is not wondering why the world is the way it is, but in discovering what it is within us that makes it that way . . . and then doing whatever is necessary to transform our sleeping nature that sows the seeds of suffering that it does. This (path) is the only way the world can become caring and whole for all who live there.

Renew Yourself Every Moment

posted by Guy Finley

Reality is renewal itself. This means that as we learn to surrender ourselves to the Source of Life that never stops starting over — so are we empowered to see that whatever seems a lost opportunity, is really the same as a new one being revealed.

 ***

Even though it may not seem so at times, the truth is that every moment in life is new; equally true, however, is that these moments can only be as new as we are willing to meet them that way.

 ***

No one fails who falls in the battle to be a better human being, for while the “flesh” is often weak — Spirit is indomitable — and always rises anew, strengthened for its experience and ready to start again.
